The FCPS STEAM web page and @FCPSSTEAM on Twitter offer some terrific ideas for learning at home. This week learn how to make a trash pick-up device using recyclables.  In STEAM education, students combine Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics to learn, explore, and solve problems in new ways.

Cedar Lane School

Dear Cedar Lane Community:

Despite attempts to address identified technology issues over the weekend, yesterday it became evident that Blackboard Learn 24x7 was not able to handle the system load of our virtual class meetings.  Last night, Dr. Brabrand emailed the community with his comprehensive plan on addressing the problems that have arisen with the current distance learning format.  His full communication can be found here - https://www.fcps.edu/news-features-and-events/coronavirus-update/coronavirus-update-superintendents-messages-community

To ensure students have access to continuity of learning, students will resume asynchronous assignments today.  Students should check their fcpsschools.net email and/or log into Google Classroom, if applicable, and look for messages, videos, and assignments from their 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th period teachers.  Staff will be available to answer questions via email for students needing further guidance.   

Herndon High School

Dear Herndon Class of 2020 Families,

We hope you are well!  We want you to know that we understand how difficult it has been for both you and your child to go through this experience during their senior year. We understand there are feelings that so much has been taken, but there still is so much that can be given.  It is important to us that we continue to celebrate the Class of 2020, and we want to give you an opportunity to let us know what will make their senior events special. 

We have already heard a lot of great ideas from some of you, and we put together this survey to give everyone a chance to give their input.  Please contribute your thoughts by Thursday, April 23, to help us plan a meaningful event for both students and their families. We miss you and look forward to seeing you again!
